This question may sound weird but I would like to know if there is a possibility to display the deflation percentage of the files processed in the tar command.
I use this command tar -cjvf "$BACKUP_PATH/Complete Backup $date.tar.bz2" $MINECRAFT_PATH to create a backup of a minecraft game server.
And this is displaying all the files it is processing. This looks almost like the zip command.
Can someone please explain the difference between the whatis command and the apropos command? I noticed that both appear to be installed by default and I'm not sure what the difference is between them.
My goal is to find all files or directories in a filesystem that start with a dot (.), for example .gnupg. So I came up with the command:
find -name '.*'
Checking on the Internet, I saw some hints saying that I should use [.]* instead as the parameter value for -name option. What is the difference between both approach, since the result looks like the same?
